Whatever is reasonable to you. I don't want anyone to feel they have to make a certain number of items, just do what you want/can. And have fun!!

OK, looks like I had a little typo. It says in the subject that the swap needs to be sent by May 7, and in the main message it says May 1. Let's just go with May 7 just in case anybody was really set on that. Rad?

Wow, i was actually thinking of proposing an edward gorey swap, and now i don't have to.  I'll have to think hard on this one because i'm participating in another swap as well and i don't know if i'll have time.  Sooooo tempting.

I've finished my crafting for this swap. I think I made a super long crafting time for this one, but that's OK, it's nice to have extra time if you are participating in other swaps. I hope everyone is doing well and having fun coming up with gorey stuff!

OK, tomorrow is the send date. A couple of you have let me know you won't be shipping on time, that's fine. All others: Remember to PM me and your partner your DC number. And if you don't think you'll be able to make the send date let me know.

OK, if your name is in black, then I have not heard from you yet and you need to contact me. If you are purple then you have sent your package. If you are purple and crossed out Then you have sent and received. If you are black and crossed out, you have received,  but not sent. If you are red then you have not sent, but you have notified me you will be a little late.

It looks like we most likely have a flake on our hands.....does anyone want to take on a second partner?? This means you would receive twice as well as send twice.

It's kind of early days yet to be calling flake. Maybe we should wait another week or so before anyone gets negatives or has to send multiple packages?

I mean, I've not received my part of the swap yet, I'm sure there are others in the same boat. Just because someone says that they've sent doesn't mean that they have.

I never got mine --- I heard it got returned. I checked and mine was delivered but I never heard anything from Zee about it.

I feel a little bad to since I made what I could and by the looks of everyone elses it wasnt much. Sad

Is there some sort of guidelines were supposed to follow?

I didn't set any guidelines. generally it's one item that takes you a bit of time, and 2 smaller items. But like I said, I didn't set any guidelines, so I'm sure what you sent was wonderful. I've PM'd Zee, I'll PM you when I receive a reply.
